Café culture is a huge part of Spanish life, so coffee addicts will be delighted to know that they will be able to find a place to drink their favourite brew on almost every street corner in Palma.
A decade ago, cafés in Mallorca were quite basic and dated. Back then, the quality of the coffee was the most important thing. Don’t get me wrong, if this is what you want, you can visit a traditional Spanish coffee shop whilst in the city – there are plenty still in existence. You will find the coffee tends to be good and very reasonably priced. These places are usually filled with locals and a great way to soak up some authentic Mallorcan way of life.
Today, however, as coffee takes the world by storm, a new breed of coffee shops has arrived in Palma. Some are arty, others are minimalistic and sleek, or perhaps a more comfortable home-away-from-home lounge vibe might be more suitable for you? Either way, there’s certainly something for everyone in this cosmopolitan city. Below are a few of the coolest cafes in Palma. Coffee connoisseurs don’t worry – we promise you will be seduced by the scent of freshly roasted coffee beans in all these establishments.
